the british equalities minister hails christina hendricks as the new beauty role model

the british equalities minister hails christina hendricks
as the new beauty role model.
 and once and for all takes sides against airbrushing misuse
 and the spread of images showing misleadingly thin bodies.


lynne featherstone , the british equalities mnister,
 is one of the champions of the battle against
misuse and airbrushing the way it sells
unacceptably unrealistic models of thin bodies.
 her battle against size obsession is
especially directed towards
 the protection of young girls who, in her opinion,
need more edifying and healthy role models.  
she is trying to convince the fashion magazines
to stop manipulating images
and start publishing more real models.
in particular, in a recent interview
has elected christina hendricks
as a positive role model to follow.
"christina hendricks is absolutely fabulous.
we need more of those role models."
the minister would like to see in fashion magazine
 a broader variety of shapes and sizes
representing a more varied concept of beauty,
open to diversity.
instead, young girls and women are
 continually confronted with false images
of incredibly thin women,
which could create lifelong psychological damage.
featherstone believes that such misuse
should be dealt with seriously,
 especially by people who have children
 and wish to help them grow with positive role models .
